f2s_esql_get_stmt {variable} using {variant}




The string variable that will receive the set SQL Statement attached to the interface.


The required variant type variable that will receive a statement interface.


This command returns the last embedded SQL statement that was executed into a string. Optional parameters can be passed to specify what character to start the string at and also the maximum number of characters to allow for the string.

The required “using” syntax allows you to pass around the interface created by this command. The variable passed MUST be a variant. This allows for multiple statements to be active concurrently in some cases. If you use the “using” syntax, it must be used on all subsequent commands. Mixing the using syntax is not supported. So for instance, if you plan on having multiple statements active concurrently, all active statements must make use of the using syntax.

SQL statements can end up being very long and complicated in some cases. Working with these large statements can be cumbersome in DataFlex because of line continuation syntax. This can also hinder readability. To make things easier, you can use the ImageToString function in the cMertechImageParser.pkg package to allow loading of SQL statements from DataFlex images. See the example below for this use.

     Variant[] vRow
